Heavenly Father, please help us to number our days and grow a heart of wisdom. Please help us to see how short our life is and that sin has broken and destroyed our world leaving us without peace and facing your wrath. Help us to see things from your perspective, recognising the tragedy of our sin and the dreadfulness of it, that we might grieve what we have done. Please keep us clinging to you also, as the only source of peace and joy in light of the mess of sin. May we trust in your mercy and steadfast love that you have brought to fulfilment through Christ that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Please grow and establish us in Christ, and bring about lasting change in our hearts through your Spirit.
